August 1, 2011—The Mead Art Museum is pleased to announce its latest acquisition—the oil painting Le Château de la Croix-Blanche à Saint Mammes (après-midi de Septembre) by Impressionist Alfred Sisley. This exquisite painting is the gift of John C. Haas (’40) and Chara C. Haas; it came to the museum in July.

All of us at Amherst are deeply grateful for the gift, which is displayed in a prominent position in the Mead's  Arms Gallery. Why not drop by to see it if you are in town?
